Vall d'Hebron-Drassanes special programme for infectious diseases
Drassanes Medical Centre (CAP) has a team of professionals specialised in the diagnosis and treatment of infectious diseases; from sexually transmitted diseases to diseases brought in from abroad.
Sexually transmitted diseases
Drassanes Exprés is a project focused on early diagnosis and rapid response for sexually transmitted diseases. The service offers appointments, availability permitting, for confidential tests and routine examinations with results available in under 6 hours via SMS or email.
The test is designed for people exposed to risk factors during sexual relations and who are not showing any symptoms. HIV, syphilis, gonorrhoea and chlamydia are included in the test.
Tropical medicine and international health
If you need to travel to tropical or subtropical regions we can help and advise you before and after your trip. You may also wish to use the service if you have just arrived in Barcelona and you come from these regions. We are experts in international vaccinations and community health.
The service is aimed at immigrants and international travellers. We combine international vaccination and traveller health services with others related to community health.
Tuberculosis prevention and control
The Drassanes Medical Centre (CAP), located in the Raval district of Barcelona, also specialises in the prevention of tuberculosis. Risk factors such as smoking, alcoholism and drug abuse have caused a rise in the number of cases, although it continues to be a rare disease.
The Vall d’Hebron-Drassanes Tuberculosis Unit leads the field with both its own and collaborative research, and each year diagnoses over 160 cases, amounting to most of those found in Barcelona.
